>> Is Joshua tree park worth a visit <<

Well, if you like Joshua trees ;-) Sorry, joke. It always puzzles me when people go out of their way to go to Joshua Tree because it has never seemed very interesting to me, but that's just my opinion.

You could detour up to Big Bear (when are you visiting?) . . . or Palm Springs . . . or take some back roads through the desert and see some big sand dunes, and part of old Route 66.

It all depends upon what interests you?

Yes -- lots to see... check these websites:

www.lakearrowhead.net - a fantastic area in the mountains above LA.

www.calicotown.com - Calico Ghost Town

www.historic66.com - from LA to Chicago .. but lots to see, just click on the California map .. and has other info for you.

www.peggysuesdiner.com - a great 50's diner, with great old fashioned food, and lots of memorabillia.

You could go via Laughlin as well, and maybe stay overnight there.

They have great cheap hotels, and you could take a river boat ride.
